Artist of the Day- Josefa de Obidos(click on image to see more)

Historically, female artists are pretty rare before the 1800’s. Well, maybe not rare but ‘rarely’ recognized. Obidos, the daughter of a painter was highly regarded in the mid 1600’s in Portugal and Spain. These still life paintings are part of a series, one for each month of the year. I find them quite extraordinary! A bit surreal really. I love discovering new stuff!
